It’s official, Cyprus is one of the healthiest places to live in the whole world! According to the Bloomberg Global Health Index, Cyprus is the 18th most healthy country out a massive list of 163 countries. So why is this the case? Why is Cyprus so healthy? Read on to find out…
The perfect diet on your doorstep
One of the reasons why Cypriots are so healthy and have such a high life expectancy is due to the Mediterranean diet. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fish all cooked with health giving olive oil and prepared to traditional recipes that will truly make your mouth water, it’s hard not to eat healthily when you’re in Cyprus! These foods are perfectly suited to the warm climate, unlike back home where you crave stodgy junk food because you feel cold!
Sunshine is good for your body and your mind
There is a lot to be said for the sun! When you’re in the sunshine, you just tend to feel happier. It relaxes you and makes you feel at one with nature. Of course sunshine also brings you vitamin D, a vitamin that many people are lacking in these days, but one that is vital for our good health.
Healthcare standards are very high
Another reason why people in Cyprus are healthy, is because they get the very best healthcare. Whether it’s treatment for an illness, or simply preventative care to ensure they remain in good health, there are a wide range of very high quality healthcare services available on the island that surpass those of many other countries.
Cyprus offers a more relaxed pace of life
When you live in Cyprus, you learn not to rush. People in other countries seem to live every moment of their lives in a mad panic. The Cypriot way is to take things slow and steady. Somehow everything still gets done, just without everyone having to rush around to do it! When you embrace this way of life, you can feel yourself relax and enjoy life more. You have time to appreciate the details in your life that can so easily be overlooked.
So many ways to alleviate stress
Cyprus offers you so many ways to de-stress. Stress is so common in our modern hectic world and it’s also a massive killer. Stress can lead to some serious health conditions such as heart disease and strokes. It’s really important to find ways to lower your stress levels, and there are so many ways to do this in Cyprus! You can read a book by the pool, relax and shut your eyes for a moment on the golden sandy beaches. Join in with some water sports, or sit and watch the world go by at a beach front bar. There are endless walks with the most beautiful of views, and last but by no means least, perhaps the best way to banish stress, is to watch the spectacular Cyprus sunset.
These are just some of the reasons…
These are just a few of the reasons why Cyprus is the perfect place for anyone who wants to take the best care of their health. Find out more about this wonderful health-giving island.
